Reproductive Rights at the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court's decisions this term on reproductive health are a reminder of the need for proactive policies that protect reproductive rights.

The Supreme Court’s decisions this term on reproductive health, rights, and justice were a mixture of wins and losses in the fight to protect reproductive rights. The cases demonstrate that who the president and Senate put on the federal bench is a critical issue, and they are a reminder of the need for proactive policies to provide meaningful access to reproductive health care.
